for the emergency services, and mr. romney might consider doing the same with the president now leading nine swing states by an average of six points consistent with his national average. the three newest battleground polls show yet more evidence of mr. romney's september slump. north carolina, the president up by two. nevada, the president up by two. even new hampshire, site of one of mr. romney's many luxury homes, the president leading by seven points. but what about all that jet skiing? well, never fear, mitt's hard at work doing what he does best, attending a fund-raiser today at philadelphia's union club. here it is, looks quite posh. i guess it should be at $50,000 a plate. wait a minute, no, sorry, that's wrong. that's a mistake. that was actually from "trading places," the firm of duke & duke. here is the actual video. let's listen to mr. romney on his chances in the keystone state. >> on november 6th i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> okay. just to clarify, the romney campaign is running no ads whatsoever in pennsylvania. mr.
. the problem for mr. romney, well, presidential elections are decided by electoral votes. and in that puzzle, mitt's chances are starting to crumble like a poorly constructed game of genga. it's still a close race in virginia and florida, with the president up by two in the old dominion. it's ohio with the president opening up a lead of eight points in the buckeye state, where voting is under way. with ohio joining pennsylvania, are iowa and new hampshire turning increasingly blue, that puts the president at 265 electoral votes. mitt romney would have to run the table of every other swing state to get to victory. and clearly, romney's so-called supporters are now reaching for desperate measures. >> on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you've never heard from him before. >> oh, yes, that was the introduction last night before fox aired tape of a 2007 speech by then-candidate obama to a group of black ministers in which he criticized the response to hurricane katrina and provided ce
of them. mr. romney was so rude and kept interrupting the president. here is one from twitter. give us a call at one of the numbers on your screen. on the democrats' line, what did you think? >> i think that even as a democrat myself, mitt romney had some really good. . i think that obama could have been a lot more aggressive. don't spend the first 20 seconds of the first presidential debate wishing pure wife happy anniversary. >> did you learn anything from the exchanges from either man? >> i actually did not know mitt romney views on energy. i think independent energy is a great idea. >> this is weighing in alexandria virginia on the republican line. >> i listened to the debate and the president mentioned the number one job of the government is to protect the people. now he is the executive chief commander. that is his no. 1 job in his branch of the government. he did talk about strengthening our military -- he did not mention anything about strengthening the military which mitt romney did mention that he was going to keep the government strong. my biggest issue is the economy right
. but the real debate last night was between mitt romney and mitt romney. and being so contradictory, mr. romney opened a huge line of attack for the president. not just for 90 minutes, but for the 33 days until this election. and today in a blistering speech, the president took full advantage of the opportunity that romney's dishonest performance invited. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need any more teachers in our classrooms. but don't boo, vote. but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. can't get enough of them. the mitt romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. but the guy on stage last night, he said that he doesn't even know that there are such laws that encourage outso
just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney? >> thank you jim, mr. president and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election and i'm concerned about america. i'm concerned about the direction america has been taking over the last four years. i know this is bigger than an election about the two of us as individuals. it's bigger than our respective parties. it's an election about the course of america. what kind of america do you want to have for yourself and for your children. and there really are two very different paths that we began speaking about this evening and over the course of this month we'll have two more presidential debates and a vice presidential debate. but they lead in different directions and it's not just looking to our words that you have to take into evidence to where they go. you can look at the record. there's no question in my mind if the president were to be re-elected you'll continue to see a middle class squeeze with incomes going down and prices going up. i'll get incomes up again. you'll see chronic unemployment. we've had
, specifically with issue of abortion rights, union rights and including mr. romney's 47% remarks which are absolutely dominated the campaign for the last week or more. mr. romney's record as has mass governor was also not discussed except on mr. romney's own terms when he brought it up himself. there was honestly, a lot left on the cutting room floor by this format and by the moderator who moderated with more than a light touch. mr. romney by most estimates needed to come out with a strong night tonight giving how he was fairing into the polls heading into the night and he did have a strong night. >> under the president's policies, middle income americans are buried. they've been crushed. middle-income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. it's the economy tax. it's been crushing. at the same time, gas prices doubled under the president. electric rates are up. food prices are up. health care costs have gone up by $2,500 a family. middle-income families are being crushed so the question is how to get them going again. >> president obama for his part, kept his focus at le
mitt romney raised political da seat and lying into an art form. mr. romney may not win the white house but he should certainly win the toby for best actor in a presidential debate. thanks for watching. "hardball" is next. >>> the day after. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good eke. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start tonight with two big questions, "hardball" questions if you will. one, why? why did what happened last night happen? why did a president who has proven himself as a policy expert and world class politician let the other guy take charge? because if he can't answer that question, he may be doomed to defeat in the remaining two debat debates. second big question, can a victory over the facts of last night's debate, what was true and what was not, turn the tables now? can barack obama win by getting out the word he didn't get out last night? and both are big questions tonight that might just decide this presidential election. i'm joined by governor ed rendell and ron reagan, both msnbc analysts. this is a tough blog by a guy who has been very strong for obama ov
of debate, six segments of 15 minutes each. the next presidential debate is october 16th. mr. romney is expected to hit the airwaves today with a barage of tv ads. according to the new york times, the romney camp has been quietly increasing its ad spend, and could shell out up to $13 million in commericials in swing states. meanwhile, president obama is outpacing mr. romney with tv ads. the times reports it's especially noticeable in flordia, where pro-obama ads outnumber pro-romney ads by nearly 50%. the obama camp is also strategically spending large amounts of money on campaign ads runing during shows heavily watched by women and young people. a federal court has decided to allow american airlines passenger service agents to hold union elections. the airline had tried to block the elections among 10,000 of its employees. that's on top of going through bankruptcy proceedings and a new problem explored in our cover story, rows of seats coming loose during three flights within the past week. federal officials are looking into why rows of seats came loose during three separate americ
win the aftermath even if mr. romney lost the performance battle last night. >>> plus, what's wrong with this picture? the president looking down at his notes is just one of the many images that made last night such a rough one for the president. the great james lipton of inside the actor studio joins us for the review of the theater of politics. who turned out to be the biggest winner? you might think it's this guy but, in fact, it might be this guy, big bird. he lives on sesame street. big bird began trending on twitter just moments after romney said he'd cut off his funding. i guess romney considers big bird a 47%er. a sloucher. >>> my day after review of how that debate could have gone the other way. this is "hardball," the place for politics. wouldn't it be col if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. ♪ introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation tha
and come back to the main chance here, the issue is whether mr. romney, governor romney is going to inject foreign policy leadership into wednesday's debate. there's enormous speculation, some of it fueled by his op-ed piece in "the wall street journal" that blasted the president. i know the debate is about the economy, but it's also about leadership, do you reckon governor romney will put foreign policy into that debate. >> all this month you're going to have a contrast on the economy and foreign policy. what chairman o'ryan said is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. the set backs, the killing in the middle east of an american ambassador. a break in our relationship with our most important ally in the region, and in soyria, over 30,000 people are dead. president obama thinks strength is provocative and history teaches us that weak is provocative. and we're weak overseas as we have seen our defense capabilities decrease and as the president hasn't stood up, with resolution for our values. so, yes, leadership is the overriding issue and it plays both foreign policy and on the econo
. congratulations to mr. romney on his performance. host: does that crystallize who you will vote for? caller: i thought mr. romney was very disingenuous. i watched the debates from top to bottom. jim lehrer asked mr. romney whether he supported the the vouchers that mr. ryan would be introducing to senior citizens. he dodged that question like a football player going through a pittsburgh steelers last night. i am a little cleared out. i would appreciate a lot more honesty on mr. romney's part. i probably will be leading toward the president. i am still winning. host: do you have two minutes? stay on the line. we will get a romney supporter on the line. i want to hear a little back and forth that we will moderate here. caller: sure. thank you. host: what did you think of the debate? caller: i enjoyed it and i thought to mitt romney 1. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a chr
. >> only one romney can show up on that stage tomorrow night. and i bet president obama will make mr. romney choose which one. joining me now is democratic strategist tadd devine, senior adviser for kerry and gore campaigns and retired captain wes moore, he's the author of the book "the other wes moore." thank you for being here. >> thanks. >> tad, let me start with you. for the debate, isn't romney caught between what his base expects and what independents want to hear? >> absolutely. i mean, i think it's going to be difficult for governor romney to square his positions on so many issues, you know, and make an appeal to the independent swing voters who they're looking to right now, particularly in the battleground states, and keep it consistent with the things he said in the primary. let's face it. the guy won the republican nomination by going to the right of a right-wing slate of candidates. some of the farthest right candidates in history. so, he's going to have a really hard time if he tries to square those things. i think romney will tell him whatever his pulse tells him to do
is a democrat. this is gary. >> thank you. i thought the president held up on mr. romney. mr. romney comes out and tells you he will tax -- not lower taxes on the rich by cutting out deductions. just like the president said, he did not hammer him enough on it. even if you add up all of the deductions and then the defense spending, you are just going further into the hole. >> thank you. that is dave's tweet to us. we also have our facebook page open and our twitter account. you can send us lots of comments and any of these mediums. you can reach us on facebook.com/cspan. this is laurie who is a democrat. >> this is maria. i was calling to say i think romney is running on his ego. what he has been talking about all through this campaign was just taking care of the rich and not try to help the ones down below. there are so many people that need help. when obama bought into office, he already had that debt. it takes time for a person to -- romney should know -- it takes time to settle that big of a debt in more than four years. it will take more for us to get out of the dead that we are in. i thin
former new mexico governor gary johnson flanking the president and mr. romney despite the best efforts of his attorneys. the libertarian candidate is that third man. he has now filed an anti-trust lawsuit saying it's a conspiracy he's not invited to the debates. gary johnson joins me now. good day to you, governor. nice to see you again. >> hey. thank you for having me on, alex. >> well, before we talk about this lawsuit i want to put out the numbers here. among likely voters nationally speaking when you're the mix with president obama and mitt romney you get 6% of the vote. that is the best you have polled nationally. but the bar is set by the presidential election commission. it stands at 15%. so do you expect to get there at any point? >> well, let me state the obvious here, alex. do you hear my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? >> no. >> you hear my name one time for every 5,000 times you hear these guys. if i were just being given that six-time mention for every 100 times these guys were mentioned, you know what? i wouldn't be at 6, i'd be at
another clip. one more. here we go. >> oh, my god. >> mr. romney, despite your best efforts, there is still some skepticism as to whether you will serve out all four years if elected governor. perhaps this might be a way to prove it. would you be willing to write a check for, say, a million dollars to be forfeited to the state if you renege on that promise and do not survive all four years? >> i'm not wild about gimmicks, i must admit. and i'm afraid it would bounce anyway. so -- but let's stand back -- let's stand back and -- >> so in watching that then, shannon, and i'm sure you watched some of the primary debates this past year, have you seen any major differences in mitt romney from then until now? >> yeah, he got a lot cheaper. the last time he was trying to bet it was only $10,000, not a million dollars. in all reality, in all reality i think that he's gotten better as a debater. he's had over 20 debates with his republican opponents. that certainly, i think, will help him tonight. that being said, even though i think his debating tactics and style will certainly be ve
in egypt and libya. more people disapprove than approve on that question. as for mr. romney, it appears he's still paying for the comments about the 47%, 51% of respondents to this nbc poll say recent impressions made by the republican candidate make him less favorable. they view him less favorably. 28% say more favorably. >>> both presidential candidates were off the trail as they prepared for tonight's debate. the president spent the past couple of days working with his team in nevada. took a quick break to visit the hoover dam. why not while you're there. mitt romney was in colorado where he grabbed a burrito bowl at a local chipotle. he stopped to pose for pictures with this staff of the restaurant. love the guy on the right. amazing. presidential candidates spending most of their days in debate mode. it was up to the running mates to do the heavy lifting. joe biden was blasting the romney tax plan with being out of touch with the middle class. >> the romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children by an additional $2,000 a year. how --
on closing arguments. governor romney will get the final word tonight. even a coin toss over the wives. mrs. romney will be introduced first. both wives playing the role of debate partner. mrs. romney telling cnn it's been her most important role during the campaign. >> it's a cute thing that he does, almost after every answer. he finds me in the audience. the first thing he does on stage, he takes off his watch, he puts it on the podium. but then he writes "dad." >> reporter: romney's father, who also ran for president. and the first lady acknowledging her own nerves. >> i get so nervous at these debates, and, i'm like one of those parents watching their kid on the balance beam. you just are standing there, trying not to, you know, have any expression at all. >> reporter: advice that comes on the same day they mark something else. >> this is from me to you, honey, happy 20th anniversary. >> reporter: they will likely mark their anniversary with a private dinner after the e the bait tonight. sasha and malia back in washington, they have school tomorrow. several of the romney boys will be he
debate. mr. romney in denver and president obama in henderson, nevada. we look at the c-span archival video from past presidential debates to determine whether presidential debates still matter. this hour-long program begins with an update from wall street journal correspondent laura meckler, with how the candidates are preparing for tomorrow night. >> laura meckler, as we look at the first of three presidential debates, this one taking place on the campus of the university of denver, this has been the debate season of expectation by the obama and romney campaigns. what has happened? >> the expectations are being set on two different levels. you have the obama and romney campaigns talking about how great the other guy is. the people in the obama camp cannot stop praising mitt romney. they do not like him in any other way. they think he is a brilliant debater. same on romney's side. they talk about how obama is a debate champion. and how he has set the standard. what they are trying to do is lower expectations for their own performance and talk about their own flaws a bit and raise exp
voters who watched the debate chose mr. romney as the winner while 25% picked mr. obama. a cbs news snap poll of uncommitted voters found that 46% identified mitt romney as the winner, while 22% said barack obama won. 32% declared the debate a tie. while the candidates tangled over taxes, bringing up countless statistics and figures of cuts or increases, nbc news' andrea mitchell looked into the truth behind the rhetoric of both candidates. >> let me repeat what i said. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. >> reporter: romney has proposed making the bush tax cuts permanent for all income levels and then cutting all rates an additional 20%. he would repeal the alternative minimum tax and permanently repeal the estate tax. the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over ten years. romney said again tonight that his plan would be paid for, but to pay for those cuts, he would have to close loopholes in the tax code and get rid of some tax de
on the obama record. certainly that rhetoric from mr. romney fits with that in recent weeks they said really a choice. dependency society based on the obama agenda of bigger government and bigger government intrusion into the lives of individual entrepreneural spirit of the american people versus romney view is less government, less regulation, less intrusion and more personal responsibility and opportunities of prosperity versus stagnation. there is a point on which you could expect the obama campaign and the president to pick at mr. romney tomorrow if it doesn't come up in a question at all. now the infamous rashes about the 47% who don't pay income taxes in the u.s. and that surreptitiously obtained video from several weeks back at a florida fund-raiser. the 47% is sure to come up. when he arrived last night at denver mr. romney did an interview with local affiliate, local fox station as a matter of fact and they asked him about it. here is how mr. romney intends to sort of deal with that issue of the 47%. >> they want to know is, will he get jobs for the american people and get rising in
for serious answers and accounting for what's happened in libya the last couple of days. mr. romney has been sparring with rob portman the senator from ohio with mock debates. he will spend literally the next four days off the campaign trail heading preparing for it he will head to denver on monday. debate preps in boston. more closed door rehearsals leading up to wednesday. knows this is a big opportunity for him to regain momentum having slid in the polls for several weeks now. he talked a little bit on campaign plane as he was on his way back from philadelphia to boston where he will spend the weekend doing more research. watch. >> they will make the decision on what they believe is the best interest of the country and their own family. i expect to be able to describe that in a way people will understand. and if they do, i will get elected. romney was referring to the first opportunity to stand face to face with president obama and call him on what mr. romney has said has been a mischaracterization and deception of the the same holds on the other side of this. three presidential debates a
and that the president seemed unfocused and let mr. romney get away with a lot of factually challenged stuff that he should have been confronted on. what's your take on it? >> i think romney might have had a theatrical aggression. the case the president has been making to the american people, why are voters in ohio and florida concerned about mitt romney? he firmly and proudly doubled down on his plan. he dishonestly tried to run away from that tonight. in terms of wall street reform, romney said even though reckless behavior on wall street contributed to the recession, i want to roll that back. so we see the entire campaign as one story we're telling and for the american people listening tonight who has the better plan for the middle class, who they can trust to make sure that wall street doesn't wreck our economy again, the president did a good job of laying that out. >> david plouffe, this is al sharpton. i'm one that thinks mr. romney might have made a mistake tonight. i think he was theatrical, but he gave so many answers that will be proven to be untrue. is it not the strategy of obama campaig
to make up that revenue mr. romney has said he wants to clear out the underbrush of deductions and loopholes but has not specified how he would do it. >> governor romney has made it plain. first of all, he doesn't want tax cuts for the rich. he's proposing lowering the top marginal rate to 28% obama's own commission recommended cutting it to 24%. so mitt romney's saying, i'm coming in 4% higher than obama's own commission. and by the way, obama's commission by getting rid of loopholes raised a trillion dollars in revenue. it didn't cut revenue at all. it rsed revenue while cutting the rates more than mitt romney wants to cut the rates. now how is that a $5 trillion hole? >> governor strickland? >> hey, chris, can i talk just for a moment. >> as long as it is just for a moment. >> he has a $5 trillion tax cut plan. he says it's going to be revenue neutral because he's going to offset it by getting rid of loopholes. the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. you know, the tax deductions where the real money is, chris, is th
to the people at home. mitt romney talked right to president obama, addressed him by name as mr. president. this was a very deliberative thing and deliberate thing that mitt romney did. no question that's something that he practiced. you know, we know he spent countless hours of practicing and preparing and it just sort of shows you that it's not just what people say or die say in these debates, it's how they say it. it's their body language. it's -- it's the way they look and absolutely kril to the overall feel. you know, i've been talking a lot and looking at this debate a lot, especially the morning after, and it's pretty clear there wasn't necessarily a win or loss because of a zinger, it was the overall feel that mitt romney was really present and president obama really wasn't. >> dana bash, i have your assignment from here going forwards and that is that 47% of folks asked said the debate did not influence their vote one way or another. so you have something to work with coming out of this. dana, thanks. >>> before the dust even settled from this first presidential debate, there were
that would help mitt romney. >> you would think it is. it probably does to an extent. one of the problems mr. romney has is that voters just don't like him very much. we asked voters if they have a favorable, unfavorable of the president. they have a net unfavorable of the president and unfavorable for mitt romney. >> pollsters have been under fire from the right. >> you know it's a piece of garbage. i believe it's head to head in new hampshire. i've seen enough other polls to tell you that is a piece of garbage. >> calling it garbage. governor sununu wasn't talking about one of your polls, but one in new hampshire. how do you fight against kill the messenger? is this different than the past? >> it's not all that different. quinnipiac and most major polls do not weight their polls for party i.d. if someone passes our voter screen, they pass our likely voter. we ask if they are a democrat, republican or independent. voter identification and party identification is a changing characteristic. in 2010, democrats were complaining about the polls because party i.d. figures were republican. in ohio
. it was a drilldown on the overall economy and health care and what mr. romney called obamacare. >> i use that term with all respect. >> while the president embraced the term obamacare, he shot back accusing romney of making promises about health care and tax policy without providing specifics. >> at some point, i think the american people have to ask themselves is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they're too good? is it because that somehow, middle class families are going to benefit too much from them? no. >> reporter: but for all of the is substance last night, social network sites seem to pick up on one romney line. >> i'm sorry, jim i'm going to stob the sun i haddie to pbs. i'll stop other things. i like pbs. i like big bird. i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. >> there are some snap polls including this one that says among uncommitted voters, mitt romney was the clear winner last night. he may get a boost in the polls. the question is will it last? in washington, doug luzader, fox news. f

interesting point. lou: we hope it will be a show. mr. obama, i would question mr. romney's business credentials. lou: governor run the show and a bank statement? would that satisfy you? >> i think obama is going to be lucky that foreign policy is not part of the first debate. you have to wait until october october 16th. only domestic policy. the first debate, of what will be surface impressions. this is the last time mitt romney will have a chance to make a good first impression of the bunch of others who have only seen -- >> what should you try to convey in that first impression with millions of americans? >> presidential stature, the ability to the executive as governor of massachusetts and the business world. lou: to the obama have presidential stature? >> he is the president. lou: that is presidential. i agree that he will be. the last four years he has been our president. lou: talking about governor romney. >> here is what i'm looking at for wednesday. that one of the first times president obama has been pushed the last four years. seven the white house have not served there. n
less borrowing, not a new pool of available cash. and then there was mr. romney's claim that the president's health care plan creates an unelected board to tell people what kind of treatments they can have. the truth? the board looks at overall medical costs and by law does not have the power to tell doctors what treatments they can prescribe. >>> starting tomorrow, president obama and mitt romney weigh in on the issues in an exclusive presidential forum on the web. >>> it took the full 162 games, but tonight the oakland a's sit atop the american league west. that's what it looked like in the locker room. in front of a sell-out crowd, the a's completed a late-season surge. there was more talk of the team leaving town than actually winning their division. now they have clinched home field advantage in the first round of the play-offs. >> we're not finished yet! i realize that. we're gonna enjoy it right now. it's an unbelievable feeling. >> it was great. we haven't had this kind of turnout all year. they're going to come out and support us in such a close race, it got our
the president and mr. romney have scheduled rehearsal times. the hall itself has been closed to cameras all day, no media is permitted in the rehearsals. right now, this is the spin room, where hundreds of the press are setting up their own studios. we also learn from the white house that the president would get the first question tonight, two minutes to respond, and in terms of who is invited to night, students from the university of denver, a member of guests invited by the campaign will be invited and independent. -- in attendance. once again, it all starts with our preview program at 7:00, the debate beginning at 9:00, focusing on domestic policy. earlier this week, journalists and political communications scholars discuss the upcoming presidential debates and ask the citizens to judge candidates on their grasp of issues and the qualities they want in a leader. this was held by the national communications association, took place here at the newseum in washington. this is about one hour and a half. >> it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you here today in our knight studio at the newseum fo
from the 2008 clearly dulled, as he missed repeated opportunities to challenge mr. romney on his falsehoods and turnabouts. there are still two more presidential debates. and mr. obama has the facts on his side to expose the hollowness of his opponent, but first he has to decide to use them aggressively. i think a lot of people felt that way. >> jon meacham, you'd have to go back to the 2004 bush debate. first bush debate to find a clear winner like we had last night. when you have even liberal publications, liberal editorial pages saying that barack obama didn't show up, and mitt romney won it going away. >> i think that's right. and i think -- it's interesting that incumbent presidents, as we've been talking about, you know, are not accustomed to this forum. it's been a long time since he's been challenged like that. i remember president bush, george w. bush, was quoted -- used to be quoted as saying, you know, people will be out in the oval office waiting room and they'll say i'm going to go in and tell the president, great texas phrase, what all, and they get in and they say
